Full Description
If you would like a truly magical day in beautiful surroundings, then Rhosygilwen is the place for you! Neuadd y Dderwen (The Oak Hall) provides a perfect setting for your wedding. Set within 22 acres of superb gardens, Neuadd y Dderwen and the Orangery provide a totally self-contained facility where we can cater for 150 guests seated in the Hall, or for up to 220 at your evening party. Whether you hire Rhosygilwen for the day, or for the weekend you will have exclusive use of the venue and the grounds on the day of your Wedding! Whether your dream wedding is grand and sumptuous, intimate and relaxed, Rhosygilwen will provide a stunning backdrop and memories to treasure! We don’t generally do packages - we prefer you to have your choice of things - not what we think you should have, but we are very happy to advise and help in any way we can! Our trained and experienced staff will help you at every step along the way. Our Wedding Caterers, too, are brilliant and everything is freshly prepared using the best quality local ingredients! Some items may even be from our own Walled Garden! Although we don't as a rule do packages - we will shortly be able to provide some choices for those who prefer a one stop shop and to have a better idea of their possible expenditure. Rhosygilwen is an approved venue for civil ceremonies in Pembrokeshire. Rhosygilwen is also very much into sustainability. We have our own Solar Park which provides most of the electricity for both the Hall and the Mansion; the hall is heated by means of a ground source heat pump with underfloor heating and the Mansion is heated by means of a biomass boiler using as much wood from the Estate as we can. Whether you hire the whole estate for the weekend (to accommodate 27/28 guests) or the day (accommodation for 13 guests) we would do our best to make sure you have a lovely time!

Words can’t describe how amazing our wedding was thanks to the wonderful staff at Rhosygilwen. Having a beautiful venue run by efficient and kind staff made organising a wedding so easy. Highly recommend the venue!

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

There is no best - they are just different! From a wedding with just the couple and their 2 children, who had 2 members of staff for their witnesses, to the formal wedding for 150 - and anything else in between!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep it simple - and remember - it's your day - so have what you want - not what you think everyone else would like you to have!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The bridal couple liked cocktails - and every table was named after a different cocktail - and the toast was a tray of cocktails of that name for each guest on the table

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Welcoming, beautiful, spacious, stunning, rural!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many - it's just personal choice!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We regularly have top musicians and singers - we also have many concerts here as well as Weddings and Conferences - and often have celebrities attending Functions and Weddings

What’s your favourite canapé?

Either of these 2: Cardigan Bay Crab Spring Roll, Tamarind Ketchup Treacle Smoked Duck Fritter, Cherry Mustard

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon Baps with thick back bacon from the local butcher! Delicious!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The beautiful grounds!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We have a small team and they love doing Weddings! We also only carry out 15-20 weddings a year (our choice!) so you will never feel that you are part of a production line!
